Rifle middle on sticks
This is very fine on a mild recoiling rifle, but I would caution you on a large caliber rifle with significant recoil. A .416 will have the front swivel stud dig into your left hand and hurt, a .458 Lott will likely cut and draw blood. Been there :whistle:
What is most important is to place the rifle and the feet properly when shooting off the sticks.
A rifle positioned on the sticks toward the middle of the stock will amplify the effect of the body movements on the barrel movements.
